, WI, USA and Quebec City, CANADA RedPrairie Corporation, a leading consumer driven optimization company, and GEOCOMtms, Inc. have jointly announced today that they have signed a definitive agreement, whereby RedPrairie will acquire GEOCOMtms. The combined companies, operating under the name RedPrairie Corporation, will integrate and support all products and services from both organizations within RedPrairies end-to-end (E2eTM) suite. The acquisition will meet the fleet requirements of many industries, including: food and grocery, petroleum, retail, courier, and healthcare delivery. RedPrairies Global Transportation Group will integrate and oversee GEOCOMtmss Quebec City and Atlanta offices under the direction of RedPrairie Global Transportation Group President Tim Conroy.


The acquisition will fulfill demands from shippers and transportation service providers for essential, robust fleet management solutions that provide route optimization and visibility to manage same day deliveries for private and commercial fleets.

GEOCOMtms specializes in providing optimization to manage multiple-stop daily delivery fleet scheduling. The solution creates a dynamic link between transportation planners and drivers, combining location based services and in-transit rerouting to better manage fleets in a real time transportation environment.

It also benefits GEOCOMtms customers who will have access to RedPrairies E2e transportation and supply chain capabilities.


Adds RedPrairie CEO John Jazwiec, We have enjoyed a long-term, successful partnership with GEOCOMtms having offered their advanced solutions to our customer base. We now look forward to bringing these capabilities in-house and welcoming GEOCOMtms customers and employees into the RedPrairie family.
